British know it well, Americans know it, Canadians know it and now more and more Australians are realizing the fact- If you want affordable cosmetic surgery without compromising on the quality, its destination India.

India well reputed for its IT and services sector is now also a global contender for medical tourism and more so for cosmetic surgery holidays. The trend which was till now popular as medical tourism is now being coined as cosmedical tourism.

A recent survey conducted by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) has ranked India fourth with 894,700 surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures in 2010. India thus accounts for almost 6% of the cosmetic procedures done worldwide, more than any Asian country.

India offers great advantages for people looking for cosmetic surgery at affordable prices. A tummy tuck that costs $ 9000-12000 in US/ UK and $ 10-14,000 in Australia, $12,000-$23,000 in New Zealand, costs only $ 3000 in India. In general it costs about a third or even less to get the surgery done in India as compared to these countries. It is even cheaper than Thailand, where it costs about $ 4000.

Besides cost, the surgeons in India are well known for their skill and expertise across the globe. Most of the aesthetic surgeons are trained in the West and are well aware of the expectations of westerners. Corporate hospitals in India have well realized the potential and have dedicated desks and staff for taking care of International patients.

India also offers a unique advantage that no other competitor country has to offer- that is Ayurveda and Yoga- the alternative systems of medicine. They are well known across the world for rehabilitative and preventive practices and often compliment the allopathic or Western system of medicine.

Since aesthetic surgery is all about feeling good, India offers “great package” as most of our clients combine aesthetic or cosmetic surgery with a rehabilitation package at an Ayurveda resort. This combination is unique as they get rejuvenated besides getting their makeover done. “The growth shall continue, it’s still in infancy,” says a spokesperson from Indicure, the well established cosmedical tourism company in India. Indicure gets more than 200 inquiries for cosmetic surgery from across the world and mainly from UK, US, Canada and now many from Australia, New Zealand and even from France and other European countries as well.Industry experts predict that India shall be the most promising market in Asia with the numbers of foreigners coming for cosmetic surgery to India rising from 8% to 15%.
